There were a few chuckleworthy moments in this book (by favorite was when he asked the Hartz Mountain Corp. if they were the same people who rented cars). Altogether, though, it was repetitive and tiresome. Several letters are asking if he can wear a costume (of a shrimp, or a stick of butter) in a casino or on a bus; some are about losing something ridiculous and asking if had been found (like an otter's toupe, or a missing tooth); several about bringing something inane with him to a hotel (like a 8'x3' mirror, or his own mattress, or drapes, or red ants). There, now I've saved you several hours of your life because you don't have to read it. :o)
This book was really funny in spots.It hadme shaking my head at the insane letters that Nancy wrote and the ridiculous responses he got from companies trying not to offend this obvious nutjob.
While not as funny as "The Lazlo Letters" by Don Novello, the letters and responses in this book are humorous enough, though not of ROFL quality, if I may use internet slang.
Unfortunately, Novello does letter writing way better than Nancy, who goes into more detail than necessary in his letters. It takes away from the funniness to have these long letters coupled with one- or two-sentence responses from his letter receivers. Most who received his letters probably knew they were a joke and so they either didn't respond or responded very briefly.
Funny cute, but not very funny haha. Read "The Lazlo Letters" instead.
Funny, light reading. Copies of letters from and to companies that read like prank phone calls. The book has an introduction from Jerry Seinfeld and I have heard that he is actually the author, Ted L. Nancy.
